As if the stress weren’t enough… keeping the house clean, removing the dog, remembering to close the toilet lid (yes, every time), and whatever else, now there is a hurricane a’comin. Or maybe you just went under contract for a new house, and have to deal with a hurricane as part of your Due Diligence.
While you’re stressing (and your Realtor is, too, trust me) locals brush it off and head for the ABC store. Others dust off the playing cards and board games and prepare for no power. Whatever your attitude, here are a few tips from the Metro Digs team to keep you safe, and to avoid some major hassle.
Overall, use your head! Listen to the news stations and don’t try to walk or drive in water where you don’t know the current or the depth.

But with all the rain, you can see which areas tend to flood and which ones are fairly safe. Locals know this, but it’s a good learning experience for those that haven’t been here long.
Be safe out there. Here's the official site for the State with some good info.
